I love this little adorable teapot - it is a perfect size for making large cups of herbal teas for one person - or medium-size cups for two people.

Great for serving up with afternoon finger sandwiches on the patio in summer.

It is in lovely condition - and dates to the 1930s - so now nearly 90 years old... but so modern in design - and in good vintage condition. There is one wee flaw to the rim inside - which is not visible on display and is covered my the lid - but with no chips, cracks or any other issues.

The overall height including lid is 4 1/2 inches. The diameter at the widest is 5 inches - and from spout from the handle is 7 1/2 inches.

Weight unpacked is 400 grams - so would be able to post this lovely pot outside of the UK - please ask for a postage quote.

The little teapot is a unique item - with pretty summer flowers painting all over the exterior - it has a sweet blue handle and matching knob on the lid - neither the hand or the knop has been damaged in the past.

Fabulous for use as well as on display.

These more attractive Scotch Ivory pieces from the Glasgow firm, Britannia Pottery are now getting hard to find - and indeed I haven't seen such a pretty Art Deco hand painted one for a long time now - so rather rare and listed at a fair price.

HISTORY: The pottery was initially set up by R Cochran in Glasgow in 1856. His son, Alexander, took over on his father's death in 1869.

In 1896 J Arnold Fleming joined him as a partner and the company was known as Cochran and Fleming. The Britannia mark had been used from Robert Cochran's early days, and in 1920 the firm became known as Britannia Pottery. In the late 1920s and 1930s with the addition of the Ltd Company to the backstamp - they produced a range of wares completely different in style to the earlier periods.

New modernized shapes and patterns, such as this one, were introduced. Bright colours were the norm using the name “Scotch Ivory”, every attempt was made to produce ware which was in the fashion of the time.

Sadly, the firm did not meet with commercial success and it only traded thus until 1935. The pottery finally closed in 1939 - after the outbreak of WWII.

All the wares were white earthenware with either a transfer or hand-painted design, and at their best, they were certainly the most excellent designs.
